The effectiveness of reflective safety jackets is based on a phenomenon called retroreflection. Retroreflective materials contain tiny glass beads or prisms that bounce light back towards its source. When light hits the reflective surface, it is redirected back to the original light source, making the wearer more visible in dark or dimly lit environments.
Types of Reflective materials
Reflective safety jackets can utilize different types of reflective materials. One common type is glass bead technology, where tiny glass beads are embedded in a layer of pigment. When light hits the beads, it reflects back, creating a bright, visible effect.
Another type is prismatic technology, which uses microprisms instead of glass beads to achieve retroreflection. These prismatic materials are often more efficient and provide enhanced visibility.
Key Components of Reflective Safety Jackets
Reflective safety jackets typically consist of three components: fluorescent fabric, reflective material, and a base fabric. The fluorescent fabric helps enhance daytime visibility by absorbing and reflecting more light, while the reflective material ensures visibility in low-light conditions. The base fabric provides durability and comfort.
Reflective safety jackets have significant importance across different industries:-
INLIGHT, the Star Safety Hub’s Reflective Safety Jackets ensuring you stay safe with quality you can trust. The use of ISI (Indian Standards Institute) certified products adds an extra layer of reliability to these jackets.
